Mr Blackbird by christopher363

Male blackbird (Turdus merula) in the back garden, on a blossoming twig of apple; Old Aberdeen

The black bird is a common European bird belonging to the thrushes; its song is very characteristic and beautiful; when I come back from a journey overseas (from another continent) their song indicates “home” for me.

    great shot, awesome composition

  • Dear Headygirl, nice to see you again.Thank you very much for the nice compliment. Those are very common in Northern and Central Europe and their song means home to me. It is very melodic and relaxing. Do you have them in America?

    I love the contrast between the blackbird and the flowers. It is a beautiful contrast that brings out the best of both worlds! The bird looks like he’s smiling, and a story is told with this image. Fantastic! :)

  • Thank you so much for your lovely comment! Also a lot of thanks for adding this and other pictures to your favourites, this makes me smile, too :-)
